(500) Days of Summer (2009)

“You weren’t wrong, Tom. You were just wrong about me.”

What’s it about?

The film is a timeline of the beginning and the end of a relationship between a guy who truly believes in ‘the one’ and a girl who doesn’t believe in love at all.

Who’s in it?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the quirky Zooey Deschanel.

Why should I watch it?

+ Great intro and narration
+ A rom com shown in the guy’s perspective
+ Every single guy can relate to the main character
+ Expectations/reality scene
+ Time jumping creates contrast and humour
+ Amazing soundtrack
+ Documentary style Q&A
+ Effects of the pop culture on the idea of love
+ Flips everything you thought you knew about rom-coms

Why shouldn’t I watch it?

– If you’ve seen this movie before it was cool
– If you’re Jenny Beckman
– If… Um… If you… If you hate good movies?

Anything else?

One of my favourite films of all time and gets better after every viewing. An original movie that has the perfect mix of drama and comedy. A must-see movie, especially after a break-up. You won’t only like this movie, you might just Joseph Gordon-Love it.
